Have you looked at the write_http plugin[1]?

Did you make collectd plugins for gathering GPS data, or are you using something like the sensors plugin?
If not, you can use something like the cURL plugin to read local files into collectd [2].

I would like to ask for your advice for the following use case.

Humidity, Temperature Sensors and GPS coordinates are recorded in BeagleBone Black (an ARM based embedded system) every 20 seconds.

I would like to use Collectd to report these data to a server in HTTP POST requests

I have a C program that talks with the sensors and GPS coordinates and wrap them in a JSON packet.

What plugins should I use to make use of collectd for sending these data to my server?

I would be happy to hear your suggestions.
Thanks a lot
